Sleet, Snow, Cold... April?

Today felt much more like early March than late April. Low pressure has been hanging out over the great lakes pulling cold air into the area. The cold air, along with strong April sun, leads to instability showers during the daytime. Those showers included some sleet and snow flakes too. Total precipitation for today has been 0.24 inches.
If you're up early Wednesday morning you may get a glimpse of the International Space Station. It will be the brightest ever seen as it passes directly overhead around 5:30am EDT. The station will approach from the SSW and move to the ENE. It will have a magnitude of -3.7 which is quite bright.
